the numbers look like the numbers you get on stdout when running
rrdtool by hand ... I don't know why they show up in cacti ... must
be the way rrdtool is called here ... the most portable way of
handling this is to first write the graph to a file and then read
it back from there ...
rrdtool 1.3 support the graphv command which returns data in a more
structured way ... but you will need the new php bindings done by
benny for this ...
